about

While there are plenty of studies on the impact English has exerted on the German language, the reverse contact situation has been relatively neglected. This monograph sets out to shed light on the German influence on the English lexicon in the twentieth century. It provides the first systematic appraisal of the semantic integration and contextual usage of the words adopted from German in the past few decades. The results presented in this study are based on the evaluation of a comprehensive lexicographical corpus of 1958 twentieth century German borrowings retrieved from the Oxford English Dictionary Online. The present-day usage of the borrowings is illustrated with linguistic documentary evidence collected from a wide range of English language corpora.
Julia Schultz studied English as well as French Language and Literature at the Universities of Heidelberg, Aberystwyth, and Paris. She completed her PhD in Linguistics on twentieth-century borrowings from French into English at Heidelberg University. She currently teaches English and German Linguistics at the University of Heidelberg.
